Belated Birthday Bash Blog Hop for eclectic Paperie

Awww, I miss my friends over at eclectic Paperie. My first design team! When Kim Schofield contacted me for the Belated Birthday Bash blog hop, I was happy to join the fun.

We're celebrating the (belated) one year anniversary of the store's new ownership. It's been an amazing year, full of inspiring projects, wonderful classes, and many many new products! eclectic Paperie wouldn't be where it is today without the ongoing support of their customers and as a BIG thank you, you'll have an opportunity to win these great prizes! 5 commenters' names will be drawn.


A full set of Tim Holtz's NEW Distress Paints

6 x 6 Paper Pad Bundle

Dylusions Stencil Bundle

A set of  Wendy Vecchi's NEW archival inks

Crafter's Workshop Stencil Bundle


To be entered in the prize drawing, please be sure to comment on the eclectic Paperie blog and on each of the designers' blogs celebrating in this Belated Birthday Bash blog hop. Just go to the links at the bottom of my post to hop to the other designers. While you're visiting their blogs, you'll see projects using products from the eP store that I'm sure will certainly inspire you.



My project is a cute little baby's mini album using Graphic 45's Mother Goose 8 x 8 collection and the Regular Tag Album.



I just love the sweet images in this bright and cheery paper. I used a cash key (Tim Holtz) to inset this baby's image. 



This lucky find was in my local Hobby Lobby on the jewelry-making aisle. (Fairy Tale by bead treasures.)



The big moon and stars are cut from Tim Holtz's new Crescent Moon and Stars Alterations die. The baby letters are from his Wordplay die.



The Mother Goose chipboard tags are a fun embellishment for tabbing the pages.



The inside of the album is still a work in progress, but this is how it's shaping up so far. You'll have to come back and see me early next week when I've finished it up. 



Okay, now hop along and enjoy the other designers' creations. You'll have until tomorrow night (Sept. 20) at midnight EST to leave your comments to be eligible to win.
